So, I was transferring about 5 blogs from Drupal to Jekyll. On
Drupal, I had chosen a single theme and just varied the base colours
and called it a day. With the move, I thought I would have more
adifferent themefrom somewhere for each blog.
Sounds like fun, no? These gem themes are almost
drag and drop, right?? Maybe... If you
like exactly what you get out of the
I am very fortunate that my sweetie can hack Emacs for me. Oh,
sure, I could learn elisp and do it for myself, but the time it
would take to level up my proficiency... I take the easy way out.
I had about 5 Drupal blogs that I wanted to export to Jekyll. Most
of them were a mix of blog and HTML website, although the biggest
one also used Drupal to generate some info pages, like the About
page. They ranged from 1-200 posts. Of course, the biggest blog
had comments. Obviously, I started with the smallest blogs and
worked my way up.
The first thing I needed to do was get the
importer to output
the postnode id so I could match
comment to post. While I was mucking about, I changed
the categories to tags for a
better Jekyll directory structure.
